Looks like it applies to pretty much anything:

Quite often decent used examples for sale this side of the Pond...compared with new I've seen some that look like excellent value.
Might be worth considering??..

If you can find a US built one. Armstrong Marine announced last year that they had done a deal with Naiad, but I don't know if they've actually built any yet.

Don't you just love the US idea of an open market and trade, as long as it's one way!

Why does where the boat / vessel was built have anything to do where it operat? .Oh and I love the exception allowing Canadian vessels to ply their trade UNTIL a US operation starts up. Nothing like a level playing field

It has to do with knowing how the boat is built - a question of standards, really. There's no restriction with leisure boats, same here in Ireland - but it all changes when the boats become passenger vessels. Then there are Regulations

At this time, a RIB built in the UK cannot be coded to P5 in Ireland UNLESS we've had a shufti at the hull while it is in build (we send our inspectors to look). That is because your build oversight standards were so lax that you allowed the build of Big Yellow to happen.

Maybe the US were worried about more British tat entering their market?

Laws are easy to create, but hard to remove once in enacted.

One of my personal favorites : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_tax
25% tariff on "light trucks" , so products such as the Mercedes Sprinter are brought in as passenger vans, then the seats / rear interior are shredded locally and the vehicle is turned back in to a "light truck".
